Ruby White Tips - P Wagon

*Product was purchased by me at a blogger discount*
*However, all opinions are my own*

Happy Friday my fellow nail enthusiasts! I'm going to celebrate the weekend by attempting some nail art. Please note that I said ATTEMPT, I will show you later in this post what happens when I do "nail art." I go to nail art as Sochi Olympic Hotels go to functioning doors (hint, IT DOESN'T WORK). But before I get to that, let's get to today's pretty shall we?

P Wagon is the rather sassy name for this polish from the Kill Bill Collection which Ruby White Tips describes as

This is a true to the name DUO CHROME, and one that I have never seen before! It's breathtakingly stunning in person. It's not only a beautiful nude with one coat, with black under it it turns into another color completely. 

Sounds intriguing no? Let's see if it lives up to the hype!

Here I am minding my own business, then ZING, gold color shift!

Swatches show, I believe, two thick coats with minimal VNL (which isn't obvious in real life). This color is predominately a white based polish with red/pink shimmer. However, when this baby shifts, oh boy! The shift photo is just a swatch photo of the polish, no additional undies. Now, let's get to this "nail art" and we can talk about how this polish performs over other colors.

So let's just get this out of the way first, STAMPING IS HARD.  I could not make those images straight to save my life. I dunno, maybe it's my eyes that are crooked? Anywho, all 4 of my fingers started off with 2 coats of Wet 'n' Wild French White Creme. Next, I taped off vertical stripes on my middle and ring finger,  painted off Cult Nails Ms. Conduct (an awesome taupe-y dark brown cream), and IMMEDIATELY pulled off the striping tape. Then, I painted all 4 nails with as thin of a coat I could of P Wagon. Finally, I stamped my pointer and ring fingers using Ms. Conduct and the Vivid Lacquer VL004 plate. Finally, I topped everything off with Glisten & Glows HK Girl Fast Dry Top Coat. Aside from the terrible stamping and unclean lines, I love the idea of this mani. I especially love this photo where you can see the polish shift! P Wagon does add a slightly nude undertone to the white polish while turning overwhelmingly red/pink over the darker base color.

Now, let's talk about formula. As a stand alone polish, it was fabulous. Smooth, thick, and buttery. However, when applied thin as a top coat (and I will be the first to tell you this could be entirely due to my polishing error), I had some problems with dragging and this prevented me from getting the thin coats I really wanted. So, I think I'm going to add a couple drops of thinner and try it out again.

Well that's all for the sassy lass that is P Wagon! I have one more polish to show you from Ruby White Tips, and this one is a mystery polish. So hold onto your seats kids! Hope you have a wonderful evening and see you next time! But until then, remember to always keep it classy and creative!
